So this week was Ella Rose's return to preschool!
That's right, a second year at Peach Blossom preschool taught by Ms. Christine.
There's the same gang from last year, with the addition of five new children who all seem just lovely. :)
I think it's going to be a good year.
|Ella Rose traced those letters and did the illustrations all herself! :)|
|This is her on the first day of school last year (her friend Molly's on the right).|
My, how she's changed!!
And how can't it be a good year, when Ms. Christine makes sure to start it off so right?
Namely, in the form of a family potluck!
Mid-day Tuesday, the families came to the school to meet each other, see the cubby room, drop off supplies, and share a delicious meal.
|No pics of the food or family, but this is what the garden looks like.|
And the kids get to play in it!
Ella has her same little space in the cubby room as last year, and has the same fawn illustration to accompany her name. Ms. Christine apparently matches up the child to a thing in nature that she feels matches the child's personality and general aura. I think the fawn is a great match -- and some of you may even know that I had wanted to change Ella's name to Fawn in her first week of life. Ha!
|A cozy little room and delightful way to start the school morning.|
Another point of interest this year is that now that Ella Rose can ride her two-wheeler (16"-wheel variety), she can ride all the way to school and back with me.
It went smashingly well the first day and took us 45 minutes. And then today, even with me pulling William in the trailer, it actually took only 30 minutes! :)
I like to think it's because she had a hearty breakfast of oatmeal, rather than cold cereal, but we'll see ;)
And then, coupling all that exercise with an early morning, fun-filled first day at school, and early dinner...both she and William konked at out 7:30 for the evening!!!!!
I can't even remember the last time that ever happened, if it ever even did @_@
Dear God, please that pattern lasts!!!!
Well, that is all for now.
Until next time, take care and Happy First Week Back to School!!
